Business Climate Survey Results Awaited

Falklands Business Climate Survey Results Awaited

By J. Brock (FINN)

The FIDC Business Climate Survey 2014 was distributed to businesses electronically on Tuesday the 1st April 2014. The hope behind the electronic survey is to increase the return rate of completed surveys by improving the speed and ease with which businesses can complete and return this critical tool to FIDC. Increasing the return rate of the survey improves the accuracy of the results and provides a clear indication to FIDC of the current Falklands business environment and barriers to growth.

The survey will be provided as a PDF attachment. The PDF survey allows business owners to answer the questions and return the completed form to FIDC at a press of a button on the survey itself. Instructions to electronically complete the survey can be found on the second page of the survey.

FIDC can assure businesses that all of the information contained in the results of each returned survey will be kept strictly confidential and will never be shared internally within FIDC or externally. FIDC hopes you have confidence in the Corporation to keep your business information confidential. You also have the option, if you feel more comfortable, in printing your completed survey and handing it in to FIDC.

The deadline for completed surveys is Monday 21st April 2014.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, how to complete and return it electronically, please contact Michael Betts by email with mbetts@fidc.co.fk or by telephone on 27211.
